Description

Designed as a general introduction to Christian liturgy, this book explores the meaning, history, and practice of worship in Eastern and Western, Catholic and Protestant traditions. Its chapters cover the theology of worship, the historical development of Eucharist and the Prayer Offices, the lectionary and customs of the church year, other sacramental rites, and the use of music and the arts. As such, it is a perfect textbook for students seeking to understand the basics of liturgical worship, as well as a reliable guide for worship leaders.
Written in the form of a handbook and designed with questions and answers for easy reference, Introduction to Christian Liturgy will help both novice and experienced worship leaders make informed decisions in their liturgical choices and practices.

"In an appealing question and answer format, Senn has given us a catechism of worship that is simple, clear, and practical throughout, with his deep learning and his long experience as a parish pastor abundantly evident. The book is a treasure for all who care about Christian worship."
—Philip Pfatteicher
author of The New Book of Festivals and Commemorations
 
"Combining the skills of ecumenical scholar and experienced Lutheran pastor, Frank Senn has produced a wonderfully useful handbook for Christian liturgy. Pastors and students alike will benefit greatly from his careful and accessible survey of the tradition of Christian worship. The question and answer format should help readers to find needed information quickly."
—John Baldovin

"Drawing upon his years of experience as a pastor of congregations and a teacher in graduate academic programs, Frank Senn has produced a liturgical primer—a 'pastoral manual'—organized by theoretical and practical questions that shape the content of the book. The ecumenical range of the text, the consideration given to practices in local contexts, and the provision of learning aids, all make this a rich, accessible and helpful study book for classroom or personal use."
